Coles Calligraphy offers traditional writing sets that evoke the elegant handwriting practices of old. The range includes feather quill pens, Venetian glass pens, wax and seals. Feather quills were used as ink pens before the invention of the fountain pen, and were most commonly used during Medieval times. A quill was used in 1787 to write and sign the constitution of the USA. Venetian glass pens are made from Murano glass, made on the Island of Murano next door to Venice. All calligraphy pens & sets are exquisitely packaged.
